|Description||Published by the Rev. Samuel Chenery Damon from 1845 to 1885, The Friend focused on temperance and Christian mission to seamen. It began as a monthly newspaper that included news from both American and English newspapers, and gradually expanded to adding announcements of upcoming events, reprints of sermons, poetry, local news, editorials, ship arrivals and departures and a listing of marriages and deaths. From 1885 through 1887, it was co-edited by the Revs. Cruzan and Oggel. The editorship then passed to Rev. Sereno Bishop, who held the post until the publication of the paper fell under the auspices of the Board of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association in April of 1902 where it remained until June 1954. Since then, it has continued in a different format under the Hawaii Conference-United Church of Christ up to the present day, making it the oldest existing newspaper in the Pacific. Note that there are some irregularities in the numbering of individual issues, so that two issues may have the same volume and number, but different dates will distinguish them.|

Few Weeks i11 Sea11dlnavla-No, 3, I wrote you last as we were in the midst of the sights and scenes of Copenhagen. This had been the limit which l had fixed for my northern rambling. After Rligen I had allowed myself Copenhagen, this glimpse of a new life and people. There had been perhaps a faint thought of and a strong longing for Stockholm, the fairest of northern cities and capitals, but this had seemed top far away, quite beyond our reach. Yet when I stood looking northward, with only a few hours of sailing on a brilliant summer sea, between the Danish shore where I stood and the mainla~ of Sweden, and with my fancy quickened by all I had heard of th~ venetian-like be~uty of the Swedish capital 1 was forced to put the liqiit of my summer journeying still farther to the north. If you have ever felt the allurement of a similar temptation, you will conf~ss with me that it is no easy thing to resist. One could tarry long with pleasure in Copenhagen. I have but faintly told you of the power of Thorwaldsen's works. It seems as if it must be a constant source ot inspiration to live in the city where they are placed. Copenhagen was also the home of that genial old man, loved of children of all nations, Hans Christian Andersen, that very prince of story tellers, to whom the secrets of fairy-land seem to have been revealed, and with these the faculty of telling them royally again to his eager, wondering audience of little folks. Andersen died only a few years ago, very much loved, very much mourned. To very few is it given to keep on into later life, that tenderness and chilcUikeness of heart, that sub.tie sympathy with all that goes to mak~ up the little joys and sorrows of th~ nursery~ world, as it was to him.

On sunny afternoons the view of the harbor with its many ships, the blue water dotted with the white sails of passing boats, is something most inspiring. Not very far away is an interesting monument, because of the incident which it recalls. A few years since a young German, who chanced to be spending a few days in Copenhagen, was walking on this promenade. A little boy, as he was passing, fell, into the water. Seeing that he \Vas in danger of drowning, the young German bravely leaps in to rescue him. In this he succeeds, but at the sacrifice of his own life. Throughout all Denmark this brave deed awakened the greatest sympathy and admiration. Never in Copenhagen was any one interred with greater honors. The king himself laid "a medal" of honor on the coffin. Sad as was the fate of the young hero, yet in his death he served his Fatherland, for this circumstance led to a kindlier feeling between the Danish and German peoples, whom recent war and enmity had so estranged. !

We have a Then come some hours on a charming lake, very pleasant company of passengers, and ~ith wooded banks; then slowly and quietly 3 we steam through narrow passages where we can almost touch the trees on the banks. A fair and fertile landscape spreads itself before us. We are in one of the most beautiful portions of Sweden. 'fhe fields stand golden with the wealth of splendid crops. Again we leave the steamer and visit an interesting old church with relics of the past; among- them the coffins in the vault of the Douglas Family, who came long ago from Scotland hither. Then we gather in the early evening, ju&t as the sunset is flushing the waters of beautiful Lake Roxen, on the shores of the lake and await the steamer. Far above us rises the dark body of the steamer; slowly and surely it descends the many watery steps of the canal to the level of the lake. One gate after another is opened and the water rushes and foams, and the steamer comes to take us over the sunset lighted lake further on our journey. What a new meaning such a journey gives to old terms! I shall never hear or read of locks, of sluice:5, etc., without thoughts of this August time in Sweden. Lately I came across a little sketch of the poet Longfellow in prose, which seems so full of a gentle quiet beauty that 1 am tempted to copy a few words from it here. Though it was written years ago, and though Sweden's life has of late lost much of its former picturesque and primitive character and simplicity, yet l think it cannot fail to be interesting in connection with this country, through which we are passing. "There is something patriarchal still lingering bout rural life in Sweden, which renders ta fit theme for song. Almost primeval simplicity reigns over that northern land,-almost primeval solitude and stillness. You pass out from the gate of the city, and, as· if by magic, the scene changes to a wild, woodland landscape. Around you are forests of fir. Over head hang the long, fanlike branches, trailing with moss, and heavy with red and blue cones. Under foot is a carpet of yellow leaves; and the air is warm and balmy. On a wooden bridge you cross a little silver stream; and anon come forth into a pleasant and sunny land of farms. Wooden fences divide the adjoining fields. Across the road are gates, which are opened by troops of children. The peasants take off their hats as you pass; you sneeze and they cry, 'God bless you.' The houses in the villages and smaller towns are all built of hewn timber, and for the most part painted red. The floors of the taverns are strewn with the fragrant tips of fir boughs. In many villages there are no taverns, and the peasants take turns in receiving travelers. The thrifty house-wife shows you into the best chamber. the walls of which are hung round with rude pictures from the .Bible; and brings you her heavy silver spoons,-an heirloom,-to dip the curdled milk from the pan. You have oaten cakes baked some months before; or bread with anise-seed and coriander in it, or perhaps a little pine bark. .Meanwhile the sturdy husband has brought his horses from the plough, and harnessed them to your carriage. Solitary travelers come and go in uncouth one-horse chaises. Frequent, too, are the village churches, standing by the road-side, each in its own little garden of Gethsemane. Near the churchyard gate stands a poor-box fastened I 4 'fBE FRIEND, Ji\NUARY, to a post by iron bands and secured by a padlock. lf it be Sunday, the peasants sit on the steps and con their Psalm-books. Others are coming down the road with their beloved pastor, who talks to them of holy things, from beneath his broad-brimmed hat. He speaks of fields and harvests, and of the sower that went forth to sow. He leads them to the Good Shepherd. The women carry Psalm-books in their hands wrapped in silk handkerchiefs, and listen devoutly to the good man's words." AUGUST 23n.-Last day of our journey. During the night we have had a little touch of the Baltic, but by morning we were within sheltering shores again. What a glorious morning we had on Lake Malar, before reaching Stockholm! The day was surpassingly fine. The beautiful banks of this most beautiful lake, rose about us covered with verdant groves. Numerous summer residences looked out at us as we passed. The Swedish gentlemen on board sang some of the sweet old melodious Folk Songs of the country. :Every one seemed filled with the joy and gladness of the morning. Before long the spires and towers of the Swedish capital rose in the distance-growing more and more distinct as our steamer aavanced. We welcomed them, and yet in welcoming them we regretted that we must now say good-bye to friends and scenes which in the pagt few days had become most pleasant to us. To-night we sleep in Stockholm, of whose beauty we had heard much, but which my brief arquaintance of a few hours with the city leads me to elieve is worthy of all the praise which has been given it. FRANK wILLIAMS DAMON. Berlin, Oct. 8th, 1878. Hon. Bayard Taylor's Sickness and Death. Our Berlin correspondent, after referring t~ the American Thanksgiving and the address at the American Chapel by the Rev. Dr. Thompson, thus remarks under date of Nov. 29th: " No large and general American dinner was given, owing to the continued illness of Mr. Taylor. This serious and prolonged illness has been most trying for his family and friends. Sometimes it seems as if he would never recover, and then again as yesterday and to-day he appears much better. Mrs. Taylor does not receive any calls, and does not go out at all into society. You may soon see Mr. Taylor's last poem. It is just out and 1s an elaborate philosophical one, as I understand something after the model of 1 Faust.'" We find the following among the latest telegraphic dispatches via San Francisco: BERLIN, Dec. 19th.-Bayard Taylor, Minister of the United States, died at 4 o'clock this afternoon. '!'he fa.t1:1.l symptoms came on suddenly. He bad eeen out of bed and transacting business with an official of the American Legation, yesterday. His death was peaceful and painless.

The programme for the Week of Prayer, prepared by the Evangelical Alliance of Great Britain, bas not been received in season for general use in the churches connected with the Hawaiian Evangelical Association.

GosPEL-LEAVEN AT WoRK AMONG THE CHINESE.-Facts are frequently falling under our notice, which indicat.e that silently yet surely, the gospel-leaven is at work. The means may be feeble to human view, but God employs at times, " the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." The Hev. Mr. Coan thus writes from Hilo, Dec. 26th, " Our foreign church in Hilo voted last evening, to call Wong E. for six months, and see that he is supported. Whether our Chinese will appreciate the efforts made for their good so as to lend a helping hand remains to be seen, or not to be seen. Most of them cleave more to the terrestrial than to the celestial." The Rev. Mr. Rouse, writes from Makawao, Dec. 27th, "Those Christian Chinamen of whom you wrote, I will endeavor to care for. They attend my service, quite regularly." Among the Chinese in Honolulu, a contribution of about $200 has been collected towards the new church building of the :second native church.

D:7' In the June number of the FRIEND, 1878, there is statement, that Captain Campbell called at Ascension on the 6th of January, and ordered wood and took a.way a boat and whaling gear, belonging to one John De Sylva, since which time, the Captain had not been heard from. We wtsh to state, that said "boat and gear" belonged to Captain C, and De Sylva had never advanced any thing for the same. We would state that Captain C is now on board the Norman bound to Ascension, and everything will be put right. We would add that Captain C has called upon us, and we take place in making this statement. Captain C in former times, has always been most kind in forwarding packages and Micronesian missionaries.

None of the recent developments formation from the reports of these Ameriin regard to opium smuggling implicate the cans. I undertake to affirm that in the MisChinese, though undoubtedly there are many sion houses of Boston and New York more who can be found to buy the opium when complete and authentic information concernpresented to them for sale. . ing the present condition and possible future We hope and expect that pubhc sentiof Turkey can be found than in the arch,ives ment will sustain the authorities in ferreting out every case to the utm~st, and i? dealing of the Turkish Empire itself. The pleasant lands through which Xenovigorously and severely with the v10lators of phon led the retreat of the Greeks, and Alexthe law. -;r antler and the Crusaders marched to the victories in_ the East, are dear to American sympathies. America gave to Syria the first scientific teacher, the first translation of the Bible into Arabic, the first printing press, the first modern church, the first college. In 1874 Americans printed at Beirut 30,000 volumes and 9,791,910 prayers in Arabic. When Cyrus Hamlin, who in many particulars deserves to be called the father of education in Turkey in Europe, went abroad there was not a school book in the language spoken by the people of Turkey. Now we have a long list, not only of text books on grammar, rhetoric, logic, chemistry, surveying, history, zoology, mental and moral philosophy, political economy, anatomy, physiology and medir.ine, but also of the best English works on distinctively Christian truth, and these in the Armenian, the Turkish and the Asiatic tongues. There are 11,000 pupils in Turkish common schools which owe their oriain to American influence. In the high. schbools founded by Americans for young men and women thousands are already gathered. But the fa~ts which strike public attention most at a distance are the steady shinina of Hobert College, at Constantinople, since 1852 -a beacon light on that stormy coast betw;en Asia and Europe; the steady flame of the Syrian Protestant College at at Beirut, since 1865-the gleaming of ~he Central Turkey College at Aintab, behmd the hills; and the attempt to light another torch at Harput, on the flashing waters of the upper Euphrates. These are American liahthouses on a dark Mohammedan coast, where a very hungry surf wars yet and the beaches have been strewn with wrecks for six hundred years. THE recent visit of Dr. A. P. Stanley, Dean of Westminister to the United States, has been attended with good results in the cultivation of a greater catholicity of spirit, between Christians of all denominations. He, a dean of the established church of England, was the recipient of courtesies by organized bodies of Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc. Such a man, scholarly, devout, earnest and eminently Christian cannot be made to be the exclusive property of any one class of Christ's followers. Dr. Stanley preached many times during his short stay in America, and his sermons reported in full by the religious press we recommend as good reading. His address to the students of Union Theological Seminary in New York, was. a ~ulogy on the late Dr. Robinson, a Professor m that institution whose work on Biblical researches in the Holy Land, had afforded the dean much pleasure and instruction.
